Exemplary motivation: a sports success story — Running for running’s sake and for a good cause

It all start­ed with the appear­ance of Iron­man Slat­co Sterzen­bach at ENERGETIX’s annu­al kick-off meet­ing for 2013 in Will­in­gen: his excit­ing pre­sen­ta­tion impressed ENERGETIX dis­trib­u­tors, Andreas Räwel and Andreas Kasulke, so much so that both decid­ed to stop smok­ing there and then! But that wasn’t enough: they also changed their diets and set their sights on tak­ing part in the half-marathon in Mainz (FROGBLOG report­ed).


Andreas Räwel

That was at the begin­ning of 2013 and both start­ed train­ing for the first time in their lives on 26 Jan­u­ary with the clear­ly defined goal of tak­ing part in a half-marathon. And also of mak­ing a con­tri­bu­tion to the funds gen­er­at­ed for the Hugo Tem­pel­man Foun­da­tion (link).

They trained three to five times a week to achieve these goals. In this way, both were not only able to run the half-marathon but also to fin­ish in under two hours! „Now we’ve caught the bug com­plete­ly and we have con­tin­ued to run and train!“ Both con­tin­ue to enthu­si­as­ti­cal­ly run half-marathons … always out­fit­ted with ENERGETIX’s run­ning shirt that also has the Hugo Tem­pel­man Foundation’s name on it.

They have now joined forces with Sabine Kaiser-Mar­tin, also a dis­trib­u­tor, her part­ner and two oth­er run­ners. The group has already col­lect­ed 120 euros for the Hugo Tem­pel­man Foun­da­tion through their run­ning and intends to run the com­ing half-marathons togeth­er as the „ENER­GETIX-Tem­pel­man Team“ – clear­ly vis­i­ble in their pink-and-black ENERGETIX shirts. And they’re real­ly enjoy­ing „doing some­thing for oth­ers and for them­selves!“

We say thanks and keep up the good work!
